Student Parking Information

Student Parking Information

The Department of Public Safety has implemented significant changes to campus parking administration this year. Please read this information carefully and send any questions to

All vehicles parked on property that is owned or leased by Creighton University must display a current University parking permit. Displaying a permit allows you to leave a vehicle in a parking stall, as space is available, but does not guarantee the availability of a stall. A parking map can be found on the Public Safety website. Student parking is designated in green. In addition to several surface parking lots, student parking is available on Levels 1 and 2 of the 20th Street Garage, on Levels 2 and 3 of the 24th Street Garage, and on the bottom level of the 30th Street Garage. University ID cards and parking permits are required for all garages.

Parking Permit Fees

The annual parking permit fee for students is $360. The 2018/19 permits are valid from September 1, 2018, through August 31, 2019. Students must apply for a parking permit through their NEST account. The fee will be applied to your student account.

For a student bringing a vehicle to campus later in the year, parking permit fees are prorated as follows:

After Fall Break: $270

After Christmas Break: $180

After Spring Break: $ 90

Parking rules and regulations are enforced 24/7/365, regardless of whether classes are in session.

During normal business hours, students may only park in student parking lots. Students are not allowed to park in faculty/staff parking lots during student breaks or holidays when the University is still open. However, in the interest of safety, students with valid permits may park in faculty/staff lots from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday, and any time on weekends.

Special Attention Areas

  • Do not park or leave your vehicle unattended in any of the following areas at any time:
    • Stalls reserved for the President / Vice Presidents, Provost / Vice Provosts, Deans, Jesuits or Visitors
    • Deglman Circle (Drop off and pick up only; vehicle must be attended at all times)
    • East Lane by the Harper Center (Drop off and pick up only; vehicle must be attended at all times)
    • Visitor parking by the Harper Center or the Lied Education Center for the Arts (Lot 5 and Lot 35)

  • Do not park in or block fire lanes, fire hydrants, gate arms, or any garage doors
  • Do not park on the grass or landscaping


Sanctions for violating University parking rules and regulations include, but are not limited to fines, holds on University registration and records, vehicle immobilization or towing at the owner's/operator's expense, disciplinary actions from the Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing, and revocation of campus parking privileges. A vehicle that is immobilized due to excessive citations will be assessed a $50 fee to have the boot removed, in addition to any unpaid citations. A vehicle that displays a fraudulent or fabricated decal or pass will be assessed a $400 fee and any student involved will be referred to the Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing for disciplinary action. A student who places an old citation on the windshield in an attempt to avoid receipt of another citation will be assessed a $30 fee, in addition to the new citation.


Parking citations may only be appealed using the on-line form on the Public Safety website. Appeals must be received within 7 days of the date the citation was issued. In-person appeals will no longer be accepted. The appeal must present substantial evidence that the parking violation was not committed, or the occurrence was due to circumstances beyond the appellant’s control. The appeal process is not a venue for general criticisms, complaints or policy debates. The following reasons for appeal will not be considered:

  • Frivolous or abusive appeals, including the use of profanity
  • Late to class or appointment
  • Inability to pay the amount of the fine
  • Lack of available parking
  • Other vehicles were parked improperly or illegally
  • The vehicle was only parked illegally for a short period of time
  • Public Safety did not previously ticket for similar offenses
  • Appellant purchased a parking permit, but did not display it in the vehicle
  • Appellant did not purchase a parking permit
